How is Cardboard Waste Recycled?

Cardboards are paper-based containers that are glued together and are usually light or brown in colour. They are sturdy enough to carry large items that need to be shipped or delivered. This is what is known as corrugated cardboard. Paperboard or chipboard is a kind of cardboard that is less durable and not as hard as corrugated cardboard. This type of cardboard box can be seen in cereal boxes, milk cartons, and shoe boxes. In cardboard recycling, four phases are involved: collection, sorting, pulping, de-ink and filtering, and creation. 

Without recycling, these materials wind up in landfills, contributing to global warming problems by generating significant greenhouse gases. Paper and cardboard are consumed by the average person every year, amounting to approximately seven trees. If we continue at this rate and don’t recycle, we will exhaust all the old trees sooner than later. Deforestation can be reduced through recycling. In addition to conserving energy, recycling also conserves natural resources. Below are the few steps involved in cardboard recycling:

More cardboards have been manufactured from recycled paper than from trees since the commencement of recycling operations. Cardboard waste is collected separately from your premises and brought to a recycling plant, where it is shredded and combined with water at high speed to generate paper fibres or a mixture known as pulp.

To remove plastic, dirt, and staples from the pulp, it is cleaned and screened, and then heated to remove ink and glue. De-inking and filtration is the term for this procedure. To release the ink, the pulp is frequently treated with chemicals and heat.

The cleaned pulp is mixed with lesser amounts of papermaking ingredients after being diluted with water. The resulting paper is then spread out on conveyor belts to dry before being used to create fresh paper and cardboard products such as brand new boxes, egg cartons, newspapers, and more.
